Really nice gelato

I've been to this place twice and have to say they had some of the best gelato compared to the other 5 places I went to. Almost non existent seating area though - only one small bench that is good for 2 people. Service is average (never really found the service to be all that in Milan - compared... read more

Really good gelato. Saw the crowd standing on the sidewalk waiting to get in and knew it must be good. 2 scoops, cup or cone 2.80 euro and well worth it. Must have about 40 flavors.

Most pretentious ice cream place in Milano! Decor is worst than an arabian middle class brothel, ice cream is avarege, poor girls serving are dressed like 18 century maids and you feel so guilty for them that the cream tastes sour I don't need 10 bad chocolate flavors, I need a single good one

This is hands down the best gelato you'll ever have. Because I've had gelato from everywhere, and they don't make it better anywhere else. It's sad to see they only have one outlet, but I guess that's what makes it less franchised and more authentic. Just go here. You won't be disappointed.

The most favorite one is the greek yogurt because it's the most yogurt you can get from gelato! The chocolate flavors are various. The fruits are also good and fresh. Very good. Highly recommend.
